The country’s biggest car maker will resume regular production today, after months of disruption that has seen waiting periods for Maruti Suzuki India Ltd’s popular vehicles stretching to almost half a year. The company will be straining every muscle to ensure that it doesn’t haemorrhage customers frustrated with delays during the festival period, which traditionally sees a rise in customer spending. Rival car companies are ready with several new offerings to attract buyers, and have already benefited from the disruption in production.
While the company indicates that it didn’t compromise on its stand, strife could erupt again in Haryana’s industrial landscape, given there’s much to be gained by organizing a significant number of workers critical to India’s growth engine. Maruti will be relieved the agitation ended when it did: In a slowing economy, the last thing it would have wanted was a prolonged strike before Diwali.
